and syria. the imposition of the current set of sanctions wouldn't have been possible without such a deal last november but if the sanctions led to iran losing up to or a little more than half of its oil exports, with saudi arabia be willing to step in and make those exports and i think with a caveat that we probably can't make up all of iran's exports whether it be a mechanism to totally shut them down because that would take the saudi production right up and leave no spare capacity which tends to be a driver for the higher oil prices. so, as the sanctions have come about, we had some bumps in the oil market particularly in the spring in anticipation, but as they've been implemented i think we have at least a stabilization from where the prices are the lower rates won't and we are going to see what of the sanctions have an influence on the decision making will. to meet the bottom line is is iran really seriously willing to talk about giving of its nuclear weapons program i don't see there is a big problem in resolving the whole issue. if they want to prevaricate and have a situation wher

their airspace to rearm syria's president in his fight against the rebels. leland vittert has been on this story now. he joins us live from jerusalem. leland, what do we know here? >> reporter: martha, it is no secret that iran wants to keep president bashar assad in power there in syria but they're becoming increasingly sneaky how they are getting him weapons, ammunition, other things to continue the fight against his own people. western intelligence sources confirm this video shows cargo planes that have landed from iran inside syria flown by iraqi airspace. despite very intense u.s. pressure to stop those flights. they land. they off-load and the people you are watching our sources tell us are iran revolutionary guard corps members helping the syrian regime. according to our sources the revolutionary guard used all media attention that happened in gaza, no one is talking about syria for two weeks to increase the flights significantly and continue to supply president assad because they say he is running out of ammunition, especially artillery shells for being able to hit syrian cities. what we
will prepare, considering, no, potentially success of the operation against the facility in syria. and that this may hold iran's restraints to acquire nuclear weapons. so we are in really concerned with situation, and let me add that people of iran will continue to suffer under very tough sanctions. so, there are two things which must change, diplomacy and inspections. first diplomacy. p5+1 has served as united front. five plus one means to me united nations, security council related, global responsibility to europeans like to prefer 3+3, which means the european union is the main player. i'm a little nervous about if you're in europe you had better say three plus the otherwise you will not be served dinner. [laughter] but i think it is, five plus one of course is important to keep on. but i think u.s. should not do, u.s. does not hide inside this group. u.s. has now time to take responsibility. and to change, to start with its relations with iran. isn't it time now, they give up on the occupation of the u.s. embassy in connection with islamic revolution of 1979. should also the i

: what do. the next move is for syria? -- what do you think the next move is? guest: the top general in britain said they would be considering a move there. there's a conversation but in washington and other international capitals of their needs to be something done. winter is coming. you may not know this, but winter in syria is quite cold. those who have been displaced from their homes, there is, i think, 35,000 casualties in the 19th month of this civil war. host: here's a tweet from david cameron. given what you have just said about syria, could there be pressure from our allies to make a bolder move in syria? guest: the u.s. is already doing something. it does not seem like there is additional pressure. the rest of the u.s. allies, turkey, they are afraid of getting involved. the only pressure, or the most active countries right now we're probably -- are probably qatar and saudi arabia. we have troops and special forces along the border who are vetting who those bombs get delivered to. it is unclear exactly what the status of that is right now, but i do not feel that allies, as
years during this war the syrian air force has controlled the skies over syria. they have pounded rebel positions, killing civilians and rebel fighters. throughout the course of this nearly two-year long conflict. it is one of the key reasons the assad regime is still in power. something seems to be changing in syria because the last 24 hours rebels shot down two syrian aircraft. one hell copper and one jet plane. now in the past the rebels have been able to shoot down helicopters but this is the first time they shot down a jet plane and there are reports rebels have access to some type of new anti-aircraft weapon. possibly shoulder to air missile. it is not clear where they got it from or how many they have. some speculation may be that they confiscated it from the syrian military when they took over syrian bases in northern syria. it is also possible that outside countries like qatar or turkey actually supplied these weapons to the syrian rebels especially since it takes some training and some practice to fire a missile and take a plane out of the air. there is some speculation this i
these last few years we're disengaging and pulling back from the role. jamie: what about syria, what about libya? what else does the president have facing him now on his plate? who do you want to see in the positions of secretary of state, department of defense and the cia? >> well in reference to libya, i mean it's tragic. we've been handed a major defeat there. a u.s. diplomatic post burned to the ground and ambassador tragically killed with three others and the u.s. clandestine intelligence space forced to evacuate. i don't know what the precedent for that is. i don't have one myself. and al qaeda certainly is benefiting from that as is the radical islamic movement. that is why you see al qaeda in syria. they're trying to influence that outcome, particularly in a post-assad era, so they have some influence. we have got to stay involved. i'm not talking about military involvement. i'm talking about diplomatic involvement. i'm talking about arming those moderates who are fighting to depose assad in syria. i'm talking about helping to train the libyan security forces which we should have d
nearly 20 months of fierce fighting, there may be a major turning point in the civil war in syria. yes, it is still raging. and the various dysfunctional opposition groups seem to be finally agreeing to unite at least under one umbrella group. so this is what you're used to seeing. there's no uniform there but it is fierce. these are the scenes from syria. government fighting rebel forces through streets that are truly war zones and are a mess. now let's shift to some other pictures where the uniforms become very different. suits. these are opposition leaders. essentially representing those people in the streets and they were meeting over the weekend in the gulf to create what on paper at least is a unified group with the aim of getting rid of bashar al assad. now, if they can do it, it would possibly mean the end of the carnage going on every single day. there are graphic images that we're about to show you. just one example of what goes on every day. they are the opposition saying that more than 35,000 people now killed since the conflict erupted in march of last year. so many of the
